Organ grinders only.
No monkeys.

In the world of live music, there's nothing quite like the direct connection between a band and its audience. That essence of raw connection is what we capture at Band Scanner.
Traditionally, when you book a band via an agency, there's an unseen, often hefty, commission on top of the band's fee. It's the price you pay for the "convenience" of a middle man, someone to bridge the gap between you and the music. But do you truly need that bridge?

At Band Scanner, we challenge this norm. Why pay more to a suit in an office when you can pay just for the music? Why let intermediaries cloud the process when the band is right there, waiting to strike the right chord for your event?

No more deciphering through layers of agency talk. No more hidden fees or unexpected hitches. At Band Scanner, we lay it all bare. You speak to the band. You understand their vibe, discuss your needs, and settle on terms that work for both.

This isn't just about saving money, though that's a definite perk. It's about building a genuine connection, setting the stage for an unforgettable performance.

Band Scanner is on a mission to create a world where live music is accessible, affordable, and purely about the art. By cutting out the middleman, we're not just ensuring cost savings; we're ensuring an experience that's raw, real, and personal.

Join the Band Scanner revolution. Jam with our network of dazzling bands direct, each waiting to raise the roof at your wedding, party or event. With us, it's always organ grinders, pure music, and absolutely no monkeys.
